Protests bubble up in last bid to halt coffee giant

Have your say

A NEW protest campaign has been launched in Bakewell to try to halt Costa Coffee opening a branch in the town - even though the company won permission after an appeal to the Government.

Objectors say it will be the biggest campaign Bakewell has witnessed, standing up for independent traders and the character of the historic market town. Costa may have won their application, but not the hearts and minds of local people, they argue.

An online petition has been launched which organisers say has already attracted 2,000 names.
